An anxiety complex, or no?

I have had insomnia in the past (off and on). I quit my job though, and without a schedule my sleeping pattern became pretty random. Now I have chronic insomnia. I cannot sleep even until early in the morning, which messes up my day. Even if I only get an hour of sleep the morning before. Occasionally a nap, but never when I need the sleep. I know it has to do with my being so tense. I lie down and realize my body is tense and not relaxed at all. So I loosen up a little and find out I'm still unrelaxed, and half the time I just return to being tense after I do relax my body. I don't even feel the change. Is this intensity anxiety? Does anybody know some excercises or something to relieve this bad habbit? Some help would really improve my living!
